I started raising heidi's about 1 and a half months ago and this recipe has yeilded more flies than I bargained for!


1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup baker's yeast
3/4 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon of herptivite
2:1 ratio of vinegar to water
1 to 1 and a half cups potato flakes (enough to get a good consistancy)
I boil it all for about 1-2 minutes
then I put a little dash of baker's yeast on top.

I have 2 cobalt's and 3 azures and my three cultures produce more flies than I can use! Good Luck!

:Hey,
:sorry to ask this. I know there were many debates and posts about various types of media. Some were OK and some sucked. I've been recently experimenting with different types of concoctions myself, but I haven't gotten the result that I've been looking for. I don't get very high yields out of my hydei cultures. I'd like to hear your proven "winning" hydei specific recipes.

:I know Ed's FM Inc recipe works great, but it's very expensive in the long run. I'd like to have a home made cost effective alternative.

:Thanks
